This virtual 16-module course helps students develop cultural competency and global awareness. Students who complete this online course will receive a certificate in cultural competency from ISAIreland, which is an excellent micro-credential for a resume.
We are delighted to offer this fully funded online virtual program designed to develop students’ cultural competency, critical and comparative thinking skills, and professional development through a study of the narratives of Ireland, past and present.
Irish history and culture can provide a very interesting platform for all students, whatever their own heritage. As an English-speaking country with elements of culture that are in places, very familiar, and in other ways, unique, this course provides an interesting, friendly online campus for students to internationalize their approach to learning.
